impaler: Owens' booking her wedding band well in advance was just one part of the project manager for I.B.M.'s detailed wedding day planning that began 10 years before she even met her future husband...

"Nobody knew about the binder. It was just another binder on my shelf," said Owens, who labeled her wedding plans "Life" so no one would become suspicious of her early planning.

Seriously, there is some mental illness there.

So you could say she has binders full of women stuff...

My wedding planning consisted of calling my sister and my aunt, putting them on speaker with my fiance in the room, telling them what kind of a budget we had, answering their goofy questions about colors and flowers until they realized we really did not care, and then saying "I know we'll love whatever you pick."

Then fiance and I went back to our raid. I figured "I got the groom right, who cares about the color of the damn napkins," and my fiance just wanted to make sure we could have cupcakes at the reception. My sister and aunt had offered to plan it as their gift to us, so we just let them do whatever they thought best and let it all be a nice surprise.

And our wedding was just perfect in every way, because my sister and aunt are event-planning ninjas. You could ask them to plan a war and they'd come in under budget with perfect wardrobe and the very best flowers. I don't get these bridezilla women. Hire some ninjas and be done with it.

That symbol is ok, I guess. Maybe even kinda sorta cool. But radical? Not a chance.

Lattices aren't Distributive: Knowing the difference between a radical symbol √ and a checkmark ✓. ▢

I think planning your wedding ten years in advance with no groom in sight qualifies as "radical".

Skirl Hutsenreiter: And that bouquet thing did totally happen at a wedding I attended. Finally someone said, "God damn it and picked it up off the floor."

Then they did the garter toss, but the only single male in attendance was 9 months old. Double awkward.

But she was a good sport and danced him around for one song.

\I was still unmarried at the time, but pointedly ignored the call for the bouquet toss, so I had an excellent view of the whole thing.

We didn't do the garter thing at my wedding (for some reason I got inexplicably shy about the idea of hiking my dress halfway up my thighs) and instead of tossing the wedding bouquet, I gave it to my mom and thanked my parents for teaching me that you value the most what you have to work for and because of that I would always cherish my husband.

Then I proceeded to hyper-extend my knee doing the limbo on the dance floor. My first time signing my married name was on the paperwork the paramedics had me sign waiving being taken to the ER.

This whole article scared the sh*t out of me.

Once the couple became engaged, Owens had to break it to her fiancé that their wedding was already, well, planned.

"I was a little surprised at first," said Shawn Owens, 34.

The Owens made it through the wedding planning process together and, when it came to their big day, much of their wedding resembled the binder full of ideas Owens had assembled.

Owens did give her groom say in at least one thing, however.

"He picked out the tux that he wore," she said. "He picked out the suit and everything that the guys wore. I just gave him a color scheme to work with."

That ability to give at least some leeway, wedding experts say, is the key to ensuring pre-planning doesn't result in a frustrated fiancé, or worse.

I would be gone. See ya.

I've a cousin. She loved Disney growing up. Everything Disney. She got married when she was 19 or 20. Disney themed reception- everything. All her kids have Disney names. She has half a dozen kids and is absolutely miserable. She was a happy person before, but she hates life now. She thought her life would be like a Disney movie- Prince Charming would find her, marry her, and live Happily Ever After. It is beyond sad to see. And she did it to herself.
